Let's hope this works.
Tomorrow I go in for my first steroid injections. Not worried about it hurting, just REALLY hoping it helps. I'm pretty sure I can't get a job restriction that requires me to sit in a saddle (the only thing that completely relieves the pain) for the rest of my life, lol

Good luck, busy! Chronic pain is so stressful and depressing.

Sorry, but where were you getting them? I had in done in my heel, of all places. And Yes, it hurts like the Dickens, but it was very effective, and within like a day.

I got both feet injected (between the most lateral tarsal and first metatarsal) and it hurt, but by a week out, I was feeling much better. Now I'm three months out or so and still doing well.

Probably low back. I have my consult & MRI follow up right before the injections, so I'm not exactly sure. I have an "xtra" moveable vertebrae. S1 & S2 aren't fused completely. And since I had 2 c-sections the muscles have atrophied which holds everything in place.

Good news, it went well. I was able to get out of a chair right away. Bad news, the area the Dr ordered injected, isn't the main source of the problem, so guess who gets to go back for another round?!
